Is coke good for my sex life?

What are the short- and long-term effects of having several hours of sex using cocaine as the libido enhancer? My partner and I are both clear of STIs.

Apart from the obvious chafing, using cocaine as a libido enhancer is not necessarily a good idea as there are many effects and risks associated with taking the drug. If you frequently use cocaine during sex you may develop a dependence on it.

Although you mentioned that your partner does not have a sexually transmitted infection (STI), cocaine and sex both leave you susceptible to other diseases such as Hepatitis C. So, although you and your partner have no problems now, you are increasing your chances of health problems later on. The best thing to do is avoid adding another risk, like drug use, into the mix.
